Harden, Rockets beat Bobcats to snap 7-game skid

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - James Harden scored 29 points and hit all 10 of his free throws in the fourth quarter as the Houston Rockets rallied to snap a 7-game losing streak, beating the Charlotte Bobcats 100-94 Monday.

Kemba Walker scored a career-high 35 points for the Bobcats, who set a franchise record with their 15th straight loss at home. The longest home skid in NBA history is 19 straight by Dallas during the 1993-94 season.

Harden made just 5 of 20 shots, but went 19 of 21 on free throws. He was perfect from the line when the Rockets overcame a 7-point deficit in the final period.

Marcus Morris had 21 points for the Rockets. Carlos Delfino scored 16, including a 3-pointer from the right corner that put Houston ahead for good at 96-94 with 1:54 left.
